In a recently published essay, Sean Dorrance Kelly, a Philosophy professor at Harvard University, proposes his arguments for why he does not believe artificial intelligence has the capacity for true creativity. As one may expect from an individual of his profession, Kelly makes a compelling case for his claim; however, at its core, the piece is routed in the individual's natural biases and limited knowledge of the tech. As his piece is of the highest caliber of literature on the subject, it beautifully summarizes the most compelling arguments against artificial creativity. In this project, I will break down the key components of the essay and highlight the major flaws in the argument. In doing so, I will explain why it is that Artificial Intelligence is truly capable of Creativity.
